that kind of situation? >> we have a commitment to president obama that those individuals will be detained. what i have said to the chairman and the chain of command is that were afghanistan not to meet their commitment we would have a real operational policy issues to address at that particular time. i think we changed fundamentally the nature of our operations and certainly change the support we might provide to afghanistan in the future. we have an agreement with afghanistan to keep those people detained. were they to violate that commitment i am satisfied that would be a significant change in our relationship and the nature of our operations. >> thank you, general. i want the follow-up on the questions that senator iumenthal ask you about -- appreciated your testimony. sponsor of the contractor enemy permission. as a result of that we have introduced legislation called"never contractinfg with the enemy." made significant progress. to fill in some of the gaps, including dropping the contract level from 100,000 to 20,000, as you had mentioned earlier, it is not just the dot that is contr

you think, why you think this and they say they never got a response. >> the obama administration has okayed the suspension of the suspect's miranda rights. is that a temporary suspension? >> reporter: yes, by law it is. it's called the public safety exception to the miranda rule. normally you have to tell someone they have a right to remain silent and if you don't, then you can't use anything they tell you in court. so that's why the miranda warning is given. but there is an exception. you don't have to do it if there's a possible threat to public safety. and here obviously there's a concern about whether there are potential accomplices. investigators say they haven't found any. or other explosives. they say they haven't found any of those either but that's what they want to ask him. and this exception probably begins to expire the moment you invoke it so it's probably no good for more than a day or two but nonetheless they can do that. afterwards they'll have to give him his miranda warning and say whether he'll continue to answer questions. the justice department says even in very

has only just begun, and the decision by the obama administration, not to designate him as an enemy combatant is upsetting several republicans. >> i have been informed that the obama administration has indicated this suspect in boston will not be treated as enemy combatant. i strongly disagree with the obama administration's decision to rule out enemy combatant status for this suspect at this time. >> let's bring in our senior legal analyst jeffrey toobin, joining us from new york. can or should a u.s. citizen be formally given this enemy combatant status? what does the law say? >> every terrorist suspect arrested in the united states, since the first world trade center bombing in 1993 has been treated in the criminal justice system, not as an enemy combatant. standard operating procedure. frankly, the whole status of enemy combatant remains ambiguous in the legal system. the prisoners in guantanamo bay remain in legal limbo. by treating them as criminal suspects, the obama administration is avoiding all kinds of risks and simply acting as the bush administration has in the past and

brings me here today is i have been informed that the obama administration has indicated this suspect in boston will not be treated as an enemy combatants. i strongly disagree with the obama administration's decision to roll out and in the combat the status for the suspect at this time. i believe such a decision is premature. it is impossible for us to gather the evidence in just a few days to determine whether or not this individual should be held for questioning under the law of war. the decision by the administration to try this individual in federal court is a sound decision. it is the right decision. military commission trials are not available in cases like this. i wrote the 2009 military commission act. i have been the judge advocate for over 30 years, along with the help of many colleagues. we created a system for foreign terrorists. we purposely excluded american citizens. i have all the confidence in the world in article 3 courts at the federal level. they do a terrific job. i have confidence in our military commissions system. the decision by the administration not to proce

on monday that he had sent a message through bill richardson who was in caracas to president obama saying let's talk. is that true? we'll see. my sense is that he's not -- and i agree with you a little bit, i think, nicholas -- he's not up to the job if he really only got half the vote. that is not something that is going to make for a lasting presence in the presidency. >> charlie: for the most part he would carry on the policies of hugo chavez. >> i think he would except that a lot of economic reforms have to be undertaken very quickly because the economy can't continue the way it is among other things giving gasoline away. they can't go on that way. >> nick raised the question of ideology. it's important to note that the opposition it wasn't an election about ideology. the opposition, what was fascinating about it is it ran on a comain to administer it more efficiently. they accepted the social missions. they accepted even the foreign policy. dressed in red. he was in some ways praising chavez and saying that maduro wasn't worthy. he see it wasn't an election about ideology but an elec
come about a year after my, my trip to drc to do my basic reporting when president obama announced that 100 u.s. military special operations forces would go to the drc and neighboring countries to work directly with native armies to hunt and hopefully destroy the lord's resistance army. but when i was there three years ago, that announcement had yet to come, and the ingredients of that intervention were still sort of bubbling in the pot. so i looked at it. it was an unmade thing, and i asked myself could this, could this be a new -- it's not necessarily a new way of war. there have been plenty of armed interventions, plenty of armed interventions by and for humanitarian reasons. but could this represent a kind of military strategy is not the right word, but a grand strategy? an answer to the question what is america's role in the world postiraq? postafghanistan? could we leave a decade of bad war behind us and fight good warsesome now, there's going to be lots of caveats to that question. is u.s. military intervention in africa, to say nothing of congo, can that be a good war? the
that is the essence of that obama foreign policy sir al qaeda or the middle east and a reality on the ground that shows what the general is saying very clearly with the al qaeda of presents whether syria, yemen, north africa, it is growing and strengthening. how do we resolve policy and reality? >> first of all, the first lessons of solving the problem is recognized the we refuse to use the term radical islam they use violent extremist. but added the congressional hearing or any report issued this during government. lou: i have to interrupt we have just learned watertown police law enforcement are now sending of bomb disposal robot into the location of dzhokar tsarnaev who remains immobilized in the boat of the backyard and franklin street. they're sending in the bomb disposal robot and we will keep you apprised but that is the situation. >> and with the remote to robot it would seem they don't fear his condition is in such good condition to interfere with the robot? it seems to me that they think he may be really down but going back to the other issue they said there is no policy we don't e

complement president obama's request and reflect the undisputable fact that statehood won the november referendum. puerto rico stands in a far different place today than it did six months ago. an historic referendum was held. the president responded to the results and congress now has the responsibility to act. those who seek the equality and progress for puerto rico are on the forward march while those who support the same old status quote are in retreat would drive the debate, while they merely react to the debate. and in the end mindful that the arc of history's long bends the justice, i am confident we will prevail. thank you, mr. speaker. i yield back the balance of my time. the speaker pro tempore: the chair recognizes the gentlewoman from california, ms. lee, for ive minutes. ms. lee: thank you, mr. speaker. let me first send my thoughts and prayers to the city of boston, families and friends and all those touched by yesterday's horrific tragedy. an incredible strength on full display in the streets of boston when untold numbers of people, the police, firefighters, volunteers, r
